The feast of St. Gregory the Great on Sept. 3 saw Benedictine College formally launch its new Gregorian Institute and Gregorian Fellowship program.

Through the Gregorian Institute, the college, in Atchison, Kan., will try to renew Catholic culture and freedom of religious expression by promoting Catholic identity in public life.

Naming the new institute after the great Benedictine Pope was a natural for the college, according to Tom Hoopes, who founded the institute, and Joseph Wurtz, dean of students.

Hoopes, who is vice president of college relations and Benedictine’s writer in residence, said the college wants to present to students St. Gregory’s appreciation for truth, beauty and goodness...READ MORE

USCCB Launches New Marriage Radio and TV Ads (2083)

For Your Marriage Campaign highlights benefits of matrimony.

10/06/2011 Comment

WASHINGTON (EWTN News)—A new series of radio and television public service announcements launched by the For Your Marriage campaign promotes the idea that “A good marriage goes a long way.”

“This campaign highlights how the benefits of marriage go beyond the husband and wife, and, in fact, strengthen all of society, a message often lost in our culture,” said Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Ind.

Bishop Rhoades serves as the chairman of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

For Your Marriage is an initiative of the bishops’ conference. It aims to strengthen marriages and families within the U.S.

Two weeks into the NFL season, ESPN ran a Sunday-morning special exploring why the third-string quarterback of the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow, had become the most polarizing figure in American sports — more polarizing than trash-talking NBA behemoths; more polarizing than foul-mouthed Serena Williams; more polarizing than NFL all-stars who father numerous children by numerous women, all out of wedlock. Why does Tebow, and Tebow alone, arouse such passions? Why is Tebow the one whom “comedians” say they would like to shoot?

A hint: It has nothing to do with Tim Tebow’s prospects as a pro quarterback.

For readers who don’t follow the NFL, let me explain that Tim Tebow is a Heisman trophy...READ MORE

In these times of economic woe and uncertainty, could Blessed Pope John Paul II be a model for business leaders?

Former Swiss Guard and successful businessman Andreas Widmer thinks so — and has laid out his reasons in a practical and fascinating new book: The Pope and the CEO: John Paul II’s Leadership Lessons to a Young Swiss Guard.

In it, Widmer takes the reader through nine practical lessons. He stresses that business and faith go together and that business can be a wonderful school of virtue and faith. The book is published by Emmaus Road with a foreword by papal biographer George Weigel. On Sept. 29, Widmer spoke on the phone from the United States about his book.

Pope: Renew Your Trust in God (1921)

Benedict XVI reflects on Psalm 23 at his Oct. 5 audience. He also offered an appeal for those suffering in the drought-stricken Horn of Africa.

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI used his Oct. 5 audience to revisit the theme of trusting in God during times of adversity, as found in Psalm 23 — a message that he delivered twice at the beginning of September.

“With its exquisite pastoral imagery, this much-beloved Psalm speaks of the radical trust in God’s loving care, which is an essential aspect of prayer,” the Pope said to pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square.

“The Psalmist expresses his tranquil certainty that he will be guided and protected, sheltered from all danger, because the Lord is his shepherd,” he said.

Psalm 23 is one of the best-known passages in the Bible and is commonly used in religious services by Jews,...READ MORE
